    Hi, I am a first time home alarm buyer in North Toronto.

    The house I bought has an alarm system already installed. The former owners
    told me it has not been monitored for years.

    I want to go with a monitored alarm company.

    Right now I am looking at Alarm Force.

    Does anyone in Toronto area use a monitoring system they are happy with and
    could recommend?

    Any details such as price etc. will be appreciated,

    Thanks,

    Alarm Force... also known as "Alarm Farce".

    Their "idea" of a complete security system is one door contact and a motion
    sensor for a 2500 square foot house. Your best bet is to get a few
    estimates from companies in the Yellow Pages. Pick ones that *don't* have
    the fancy ads. A small local will work hard to make sure you're happy.
     
  3. I service the area you mentioned. I would be happy to meet with you to
    discuss your needs at your convenience.

    Bwahahahahahaha! You cannot seriously compare Skinner's offer to help with
    what happened between the two of you, can you?? This has got to rank
    amongst the dumbest things I've seen you post...
     
  5. Again Robert, a blatant lie in order to damage another persons business. I
    can't believe that I used to feel sorry for you. I am totally convinced (as
    others are) that you are deserving of all the malice that is directed at
    you.

    Frank, remember our discussion?

    Uhhh...thanks for the "help" guys.

    I guess I will be avoiding the smaller dealers like the plague.

    I may get lousy service from the big guys but at least I am dealing with
    sane "semi" professionals.

    Never seen such asinine behavior as this. You guys install alarms? Jeez.
     
  9. I am still waiting for your proof.

    Sir, what you are seeing has nothing whatsoever to do with the quality of
    installation or follow on service of small versus large dealers. Anonymous
    newsgroups always generate strong feelings between members !! I strongly
    suggest you don't do yourself an injustice by forming generalized opinions
    based on discussions on any particular newsgroup.

    Do get the recommended three quotes; do compare pricing, service and
    warranty claims of BOTH the large and small dealers in your area. Then make
    the best decision for YOUR situation.....

    Best of luck

    Nah you just come off as an unemployable **** who can't hold a steady job
    with a decent bigger company like Alarm Force. Therefore you open your own
    shop, scam a few people for some money, collect a welfare check and think
    you are actually representive of the whole alarm community. I'm glad I met
    you. No I will know to stay clear from those "small" yellow pages ad.

    I would think any customer dumb enough to allow a **** up loser like you in
    their house should forgo the alarm and allow scum bags to rob them blind.
    After all if they trusted a loser low life like you then a security alarm
    won't help them.

    Bwahahahahahaha! Oh sure!! Go with Alarm Farce... They'll provide you
    with their "advanced two way voice alarm system for free... All you pay is
    one low monthly fee".

    "This is the Alarm Force Central Station! Identify yourself immediately.
    Police have been dispatched"...

    That's what their "ads" say... They're a huge fraud and the joke of the
    industry. You *cannot* dispatch the authorities without first *verifying*
    the alarm (so the fact that the ad implies they do is both misleading and
    untrue). How do you figure a "real burglar" would respond to someone saying
    that (assuming they haven't already tracked in on the control by listening
    for the entry delay "beeps" and yankin' the sucker off the wall)?

    "Well, sir... I'm Joe and this here's Larry and we're your burglars for
    today... While I'm talking to you I'm baggin' Mr. and Mrs. Jone's CD and
    DVD collection and Larry has just discovered the jewelry box in the
    bedroom... My oh my, that *is* a nice necklace and earring set you've got
    there, Lare, old buddy... Those are real first class items. I'd leave 'em
    in that nice velvet case if I were you so they don't get scratched up in
    your backpack... And Oh... I almost forgot... this here VCR/DVD combo
    player is something my Mom would really appreciate for Christmas... Thanks,
    Mr. and Mrs. Jones... and thank you Alarm Farce for the opportunity of
    robbing another fine home..."
    Hey... ixnay on the welfare cheque... Jim's a veteran. He get's a
    military pension...
    Right... go for the full page full colour ones... They really need the
    money!

    Yeah... In your case you'll get "Alarm Farce" to put in a system and "allow
    the scum bags to rob you blind". :)

    Or I could go with one you smaller guys. Unemployable, drug addicted losers
    who spend all day arguing on the internet.That's exactly who I want in my
    home installing security devoices- techo nerds who spend all day here being
    internet warriors.


    I can tell business is good for you guys. So good that you can spend 14
    hours a day here arguing with each other.
    That's what I call a great marketing technique. You might want to put down
    the whiskey bottle, shave, shower, buy a suit and act respectable. Then
    maybe...JUST MAYBE...you wouldn't have to be here all day and disrespect the
    bigger companies. You can't blame people for choosing them over you losers.



    Ahhh...to be a disabled welfare basket case.


    Sorry asshole, you got the wrong picture.

    First of all, I'm not selling anything here and don't give a flying **** what
    you think or where you go to get ripped off. If you were so smart you wouldn't
    be here in the first place asking dumb questions and making unfounded comments
    and idiodic decisions. The very fact that you've chosen one of the companies
    with the worst reputation in there area gives everyone a clue about your
    deductive reasoning powers. And in addition, you haven't the faintest idea of
    who I am or what I do, so your tirade is simply made of the bullshit that seem
    to exude.

    After 33 years in this industry, I'm living a pretty easy life in semi
    retirement and semi luxury. You should spend more time only wishing you will
    ever have it so good rather than making a fool of yourself here.Jim

    Semi Luxury? When does a trailer park full of cats and rotting ding dongs
    pass as "Semi Luxury"? I guess in the trailer park he who has 5 teeth wins?

    Try convincing someone else welfare boy.

  17. Would your address in Toronto be either 999 or 1001 Queen Street West per
    chance?

    If not, I am sure that if you pop by you may be able to find the help that
    you so obviously need. (and no, I have never been a guest at this facility
    in any way)


    you

    Here's what you'll need to work for the big boys...

    You'll need to be a "yes man."
    You'll need to admire organized crime and maybe exercise this later.
    You'll need to genuinely like sucking dick... and swallowing.

    Don't waste money on cheap knee pads...buy good ones so they'll last.
    Don't voice your opinions at work, go home and post them on some Newsgroups.
    Don't make a decision that someone else can make for you, that way if it's
    wrong, you can blame them for the decision.
    Don't expect to be paid based on your experience, it's just a job opening.
    Tell your boss the things you can't do, not the things you can do. That way
    he'll expect less of you.
    Remember. You are replaceable.

    But then "NOBODY" recognizes this, because it's the world he lives in.
    He's a Dime a Dozen, trying to input his two cents to make up the
    difference. But then, I didn't feel a thing....
